What's the relationship between Limbo and Purgatory? If they're different, is Purgatory an "official" teaching of the Roman Catholic church?

Limbo is part of hell, and is eternal; nobody who goes to limbo ever goes to heaven. Purgatory is temporary, and all who go to purgatory eventually go to heaven. Purgatory *is* an official teaching of the Catholic Church.

Yes...purgatory is an official teaching.
Everyone in purgatory is saved and will eventually enter heaven after a period of purification - some longer/shorter than others.
